Corporate Responsibility Weathering the Economic Storm

State of Corporate Citizenship in the United States

The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship released their findings in the 2009 State of Corporate Citizenship in the United States.

Despite the upheaval in the economy, a majority of U.S. companies are not making major changes in their corporate citizenship practices. Of those who made changes: 38% reduced philanthropy/giving, 27% increased layoffs, and 19% reduced R&D for sustainable products.

The State of Corporate Citizenship in the United States 2009 is a joint project of the Boston College Center and The Hitachi Foundation. The report is free, but requires registration.
